Coastal Voices: Is there really no law north of the Klamath?

It was an overcast, windy afternoon outside Newark, N.J. The forecast storm overhead was replaced by the one that always attended the phrase, “Wait until your father gets home.”

On this occasion, I had back-talked a teacher in my eighth-grade math class. I was grounded for a month and ordered to personally apologize to Mr. Ortiz.


Did you know? Supermajority: Sing kumbaya!

Have you noticed how quiet and peaceful the political climate is in Sacramento these days? Not one political fight has broken out between Democrats and Republicans. Every single piece of legislation easily passes through the committee process then on to the full Senate and Assembly and then is signed by the governor. You could almost call it a love fest. Let’s all sing kumbaya?

It certainly is a significant change from the old days just several years ago when state budgets were bitterly fought over. Increasing taxes was a big issue between the two parties and the state budget would even be days, if not weeks, late. But not today.

 


Church Notebook: Spring is here, with Easter and Passover services near

Thursday was pretty nice for the first day of spring. The sun was bright even if it wasn’t too warm.

I’m looking forward to days when I can sit on the back porch with my coffee in the morning, soaking up the sun and admiring the special things that are growing in the backyard. A friend at the hospital gave me two rhubarb roots a couple weeks ago, and they are doing nicely — maybe some strawberry rhubarb pie next year; they’ll need this year to settle in to their new “home.”

The race is officially on between me and the masked bandits — my apple trees are in full bloom.

 


Coastal Voices: New-state plan vague, dangerous to Del Norte

Given the small amount of information provided, and having had a discussion with the proponents of the state of Jefferson advisory measure for the June 3 ballot, the Executive Board of the Del Norte County Employees Association SEIU 1021, representing the miscellaneous and mid-management/professional employees of the County of Del Norte, cannot in good faith support this advisory measure.  

We have grave concerns on the impact the proposed state of Jefferson will have on the dedicated employees of the County of Del Norte as well as the negative repercussions on the general public who we serve.

 


Coast Guard may leave Klamath

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1958.

The future of the Klamath River’s three-man Coast Guard rescue boat crew was shaded with doubt this week as Klamath Chamber of Commerce President Pat Caldwell told members of the local chamber that for budget reasons Rear Admiral Wood had expressed the opinion that this service not be continued. 


Coastal Voices: Hospital ownershsip issue is still in play

As a current Del Norte Healthcare District Board member, three-term former Chief of Staff and Board member of Sutter Coast Hospital (“SCH”), and local physician for the past 29 years, I would like to clarify some information published in last week’s Del Norte Triplicate which may have left readers confused as to the ownership of SCH.


Did you know? Teens need work: A new solution for old problem

For the next few minutes take a trip with me back through time itself, back before the iPhone, before the CD, the VHS recorder and even cable TV.

Artisan Cuisine runs monthly. 

A couple weeks ago I took part in a local chocolate festival. I sold molded chocolates, truffles, chocolate oranges, caramels and toffees.


Church Notebook: Plenty of local church activities coming up

Why is it — even when it’s a rainy day — if you have to go out to the grocery store, between your house and car, there is only a little mist that stops while you’re driving and returns as you exit your car, increasing as you scurry into the store?


Coastal Voices: Critical Access is better than losing entire hospital

The people of Del Norte and Curry counties have been expressing a broad range of views regarding several issues surrounding Sutter Coast Hospital.
